I try so hard to be organized.
However, rare is the occasion that I actually complete all of the items on my list for a given day. Many things get held over and recorded again on the next day's list. And again on the following day's. And so on. Every day this week my list has included:
- laundry (put away)And every day, for one reason or another, I've neglected to do these things. Granted, these days, it's somewhat more understandable that time manages to slip away from me (get home, feed the baby, nap 2-3 hours, feed and play with the baby, nap 40 minutes, feed the baby, eat, nap 1 hour, feed the baby and hand him off to Megan, nap another 2 hours, eat, go to work), but even before Soren got here, and my schedule was perfectly normal, I still had a hard time getting things done.
- nightstand (tidy)
- coffee table (tidy)
I'm not going to lie. I get distracted by the internet. A lot. And maybe that's my biggest problem. Maybe tomorrow I'll try not turning the computer on until after I've accomplished at least two of my list items. I know, what a novel idea, right?! Blagh.
(This boring post has been brought to you by "not enough sleep" and "residual guilt over an untidy apartment." Somewhat more interesting drivel to resume after these messages.)
Update: Sometimes all it takes is a good night's sleep (where "night" equals "day" when appropriate). The boy let me sleep this morning, minimally interrupted, for five hours, and I woke feeling quite refreshed. As a result, the bedroom's now clean, and the laundry & dishes are put away. Yay!
